    I think he is funny at times, but with the kind of money he pulls in I say, fire him and get someone else. He is always talking bad about someone or another race or country. Let Richard Hammond and James May host it. Its not like I watch because of their are a vast knowledge of the autos. Point in case the Tesla.
